in thread Front Page with Negative Rep..

There is an option in the Everything software to show the number of ++ votes and -- votes separately, instead of just the aggregate score you currently get on Perlmonks.

Should we go for this? what do people think?

    Well the nice thing about "tension" is that it would measure the magnitude of active indecisiveness without revealing the actual vote count; this way you could get feedback prior to voting or considering without revealing the raw votes.

    Examples:

    ++-- Total vote tension
    100595low
    1055low
    5100-95low
    550low
    1001000high
    20200medium
    502030medium-high

    Another phrase for "tension" would be "high interest, controversial".

    Here is a possible implementation of the <tension> parameter.
    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my $plus = shift; my $minus = shift; my $sum = $plus + $minus; my $rep = $plus - $minus; my $mean = $rep / $sum; #ALERT: semi-empirical formulae ahead my $tension = (1 - $mean ** 2) * $sum * 2 / (2 - 1 / (1 + abs $rep)); $tension = log (1 + $tension) - 2; my $literal; for ($tension) { $_ <= 0 and $literal = 'no', last; $_ <= 1 and $literal = 'low', last; $_ <= 2 and $literal = 'medium', last; $literal = 'high'; } printf <<"EOF", $plus, $minus, $rep, $tension, $literal; Plus = %3d Minus = %3d Reputation = %3d Tension = %.3f There is %s tension on this post. EOF
